This film mightn't have been made for me. I'm a meat-eater, and I cannot become a vegetarian because of health reasons.
That being said, the performances are excellent. The cinematography is as well. It's a harrowing take on an issue that is very important.
The thing is, when you add humans into an equation it becomes very hard to distinguish your original message. I get that the dairy industry is terrible, but portraying it as such via the use of humans adds a dimensionality that just isn't there when you take the dairy industry at face value. I worry for the women in this film, rather than the cows that this film represents. The message is lost underneath the horror.
